When we shared Chester Watson’s mix as part of our Potholes Podcast series last week, we noted that he was gearing up to release a new project, Guru Vol. 2. It’s a completely instrumental effort from the multi-talented 16-year-old, who flaunts a variety of styles on here. “Bards”, for example, combines choice percussive elements for a slightly spaced-out sound while opener “Fast Food” is like a menacing jazz session. I’m partial to the latter, though every realm explored by Watson is worth checking for. Do that below.
